Oh how we love to covet Meghan Markle’s classic and elegant style, but sometimes the price tags of her outfits are a little out of our budget.
While she does love to champion affordable brands, as seen by her love of her Rothy’s pumps, she has an eye for high-end pieces too. So luckily for us, high street retailers are never far behind in creating their own versions of the most sought-after designer styles.
Meghan is a big fan of the sleeveless trench coat dress – she’s been spotted in styles from both Canadian brand Nonie and high-end high street retailer Banana Republic – and no wonder, she looks stunning in them. But with the Nonie version retailing at $632 (CA$1,085) and the Banana Republic style sold out, we’re left wondering how we can copy Meghan’s great style.
Thankfully, British retailer Dorothy Perkins has come to the rescue with its extremely similar looking dupe of dreams dress, which comes in at a sweet £19.60, after being reduced from its original retail price of £28. As it’s in the sale, we’d hurry if we were you as chances are it’ll sell out quick!
With its wrap trench style and matching belt, this Dorothy Perkins number makes the perfect all-in-one work outfit or will bring a smart, sophisticated touch to a weekend look. And even though the sleeveless style might lend itself more to the summer season, snap it up now and just pop a polo neck jumper and tights underneath until the weather warms up.
Make like Meghan and style yours with matching stiletto heels and a clutch bag, or make use of the neutral colourway and team it with bright, primary colour accessories.
If beige isn’t your colour, the same style is also available in deep navy and forest green, so there are plenty of options to suit any taste (however the green is yet to enter the sale).
